The domain "Les Calanques Bleues" (the blue streams) owes its name to its location on the Mediterranean coast. The best way to catch sight of it is by small boat. As you sail close to shore, you can watch it hug the coastline, glistening in the sun as it snakes around from terrasse to terrasse. The vineyards are all certified organic, in an ancestral way that preserves the soils and the environment even as it lets the sun and the sea spray caress the grapes and confer to them their unique flavour.
Made from a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Syrah, this organic Provence rosé is the palest of pinks. The nose is refreshing and subtle with aromas of iodine, citrus and white-flesh fruit. The palette is elegantly structured with good acidity. It has a coolness and beautiful minerality with a long, satisfying finish and bags of staying power.
Chosen as the best rosé wines to raise a glass to by the Independent.
"Stop searching for the perfect Provençal rosé and get this on ice immediately. Perfectly named after les calanque bleues (the blue streams) of the Mediterranean coast, this ravishing rosé comes from entirely organic vineyards bathed in Côte d’Azur sunshine and is made by Louis Père & Fils which has been producing dazzlingly refined wines for 160 years.
This one is the softest of pinks in the glass but isn’t lacking in flavour. After the merest hint of juicy white peaches and lemon on the nose, the palate reveals ripe red fruit, an elegant structure and a fresh minerality reminiscent of the salty sea breeze that gave the grapes their flavour. We’ll be drinking this one all summer long."
